ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY – On 20th August, 1308, Pope Clement V pardoned Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, absolving him of charges of heresy. King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Templars, had De Molay and many other French Templars arrested in 1307 and tortured into making false confessions. When De Molay later retracted his confession, Philip had him slowly burned upon a scaffold on an island in the River Seine in Paris, in March 1314.
Confession: I am SO happy that in Trespasser Solas said that he wouldn’t “lay with [the inquisitor] under false pretenses”. I just proves how much he actually cares about Lavellan, not that we didn’t already know that. Still, it means a lot to me.
"Dear friends, don’t trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world ... and every spirit which does not acknowledge Yeshua is not from God — in fact, this is the spirit of the Anti-Messiah. You have heard that he is coming. Well, he’s here now, in the world already!" ~ 1 John 4:1, 4:3
